Pupil Premium - What Do Governors Need to Know?
Governors will understand:
The key points about pupil premium funding including who is eligible and what information the school is required to publish online;
The information about how schools will be held accountable for deployment of the Pupil Premium funding including the role of governors;
And consider the range of ways that Pupil Premium funding can be used successfully to tackle gaps in attainment and support pupils from low-income families and other target groups.
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. It is additional funding to help schools close the attainment gap between children from low-income families, identified by Free School Meals (FSM), Children Looked After (CLA) and the children of armed forces personnel.
Governors are expected to play a full part in marking decisions about Pupil Premium spending, as well as asking challenging questions and to monitor the effectiveness of expenditure in closing the gaps in achievement of vulnerable learners and their peers.
